In celebration of our beautiful Civil Rights photography exhibition, join The Cummer for an evening of Blues and Jazz with Music from the Movement!  Get ready to groove with Funky Butt Blues Band featuring Lawrence Buckner and Ed Cotton.  

A U.S. Army veteran, Lawrence Buckner currently tours with Mark Farner, formally of Grand Funk Railroad and has shared the stage with The Doors, Journey, Styxx, Maze featuring Franky Beverly, Branford Marsalis, and many other acts. He has numerous appearances as sideman and leader at Jazz Festivals in the United States and Europe.

Ed Cotton has spent the better part of his 20 years as a professional musician as the leader of Pretty Boy Freud, a popular swing and variety band that frequently played the Jacksonville-area club scene. Along with playing in a band, Cotton has performed at numerous blues, jazz and folk festivals over the years. He came out of retirement last year to perform at the Florida Folk Festival and since then he has occasionally played gigs. School has remained his focus. In April, he'll earn a bachelor's degree in history from the University of North Florida and plans to work as a teacher. He also gives workshops on bottleneck slide blues guitar and all facets of the Blues.

General Admission:  Guests may bring blankets, chairs, food and alcoholic beverages.  

Reserved Tables:  Includes concert reservation and seating for 10.  The purchase of a table must be made by one person or group for the entire table via one payment by check or credit card. We are unable to accept checks or credit cards for individual seats at tables.
